Innova LBP And Wellness Super5Mix Large Breed Puppy Food
Anyone try Inoova LBP? How about Wellness LBP? I tried Orijen LBP just as treats (about 1/4 cup) and he was shooting diarrhea. Decided not to go forward with it.

Why is it so hard to find a low calcium, high quality LBP food? I have been looking around for a while now.

Please let me know what you are feeding and how it is working. We are continuing on with what the breeder feeds all her dogs, puppies which she plans on keeping for her program.

I am feeding Fromm Puppy. Was doing LBP but they didn't have it when I went to get it so he's on puppy which is fine. I like the protein and fat better. I tried innova years back and loose stool. I used wellness for awhile no issues.

Thanks. Looking at the Calcium and phosphorus level of Fromm LBP, I see that they are 1.1 and 1.02%, respectively. Based on an email from a vet at Fromm, those are the minimum values. If the max is not too far off, this would be a good food for me. I have a followup question to them. Lets see what they say.

I had the same issue with Hans on Orijen - almost instant diarrhea, and I was feeding him 1/4 of a cup of Orijen + 3/4 cup R/C, so not overdoing it.

I also tried Go! ALS but he didn't like the taste of the kibble.

I may try Acana or Wellness when he's older, done with experimenting for a while. I have to say that I've tried the Wellness canned food and he's done really well on it, as well as the Merrick grain free canned.
